Jason Ave Kitchen Reveal

The Jason Ave Kitchen Remodel is a really special project to me. I used to be a nanny for these clients and it’s been amazing working with them after knowing their family for over a decade! I’m so excited to share everything about this project.

Let me start off by saying, we started the design process April of 2020, so this has been a long time coming. The clients purchased their home over 5 years ago and have working on transforming this into their dream farmhouse style home. The kitchen plays a large role in that considering the large open floorplan they have.

Here are some before pictures of their kitchen and dining spaces!

We spent a lot of time making sure we planned for the most optimal, functional, aesthetically pleasing layout we could. After a few weeks of back and forth, making sure the details were perfect, the clients approved the plans and renderings of their new kitchen!

Before finalizing on all of the design details, we received initial estimates for the custom inset painted cabinets and quartz countertops. After the design was fully approved, and all finishes were selected (paint, countertops, backsplash, etc) final pricing was pulled together. After reviewing the final estimate on their entire kitchen, the clients decided to complete their kitchen remodel in 2 phases. So, what I’m revealing today is Phase 1 of this beautiful kitchen remodel.

With any custom cabinet project, shop drawings were approved and then it was the waiting game! While the clients were waiting on the cabinets, other product like backsplash, appliances and hardware was purchased so when the cabinets and countertop were finalized, it would be a quicker turnaround time on the last details of installation.

These clients opted to demo the existing cabinets and countertops themselves as well as work on electrical and plumbing additions that were needed for the new layout.

Side Note: A custom pantry was built in an unused nook of the “corridor” space. The clients ordered custom pantry doors that have glass and vintage knobs. This is not featured in the final “after” pictures, but is shown in some progress pictures and renderings.

Then came cabinet installation day. This is where the dream REALLY starts coming to life. After the cabinets were installed, final measurements for the countertops could be completed and those were installed about 2 weeks after the cabinets were completed.

The countertops are absolutely STUNNING. This quartz countertop is Hanstone Montauk. Simple, clean, bright, elegant and just enough movement to give you the illusion these are marble countertops. Then the final details were pulled together: appliance installation, backsplash, and final plumbing and electrical installation.

This kitchen is absolutely stunning. The classic farmhouse motifs are shining through in the custom hutch design, cooktop with vent hood, double oven and wine and coffee bar. The hutch itself added so much needed storage for this family of 6 as well as created a beautiful focal point for their dining area.
